Using clang?

Couldn't this plugin use clang for parsing C++? At the moment tag list has problems with my C++ code

I use this plugin to put the name of the current function (where cursor is located) in the statusline using:

 set statusline+=%(%{Tlist_Get_Tagname_By_Line()}%), " Function name

This generally works very well with C code. However, I see one example where it displays the wrong information:

$ cd vim/src
$ vim ex_getln.c '+/^showmatches/+20'

:echo Tlist_Get_Tagname_By_Line()

Actual result:

Expected result:

Note that this plugin adds a lot to the startup time because it does a lot of initialization when it is loaded, even if taglist is never called in the Vim session. It could easily fix this by only initializing the first time a user make use of taglist.
